This Independence Day is the perfect occasion to share with you one of the finest poems that truly defines freedom and independence. Written by Rabindranath Tagore, one of India’s finest author and poet, this is definitely one of the best poems I have ever come across in my life. Have a look and let me know what you feel. I have no claims to the poem and it is completely the work of the concerned poet.
Where The Mind Is Without Fear by Rabindranath Tagore
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
